      Was it fine to complete, with the two limpers?

      I didn't know how to play this hand after flopping the set, I think I played it far too slow especially with it being a multi-way pot.

      Thoughts and any suggestions?

      It's fine to complete PPs with 2 limpers behind. You can try checking the flop, but once that doesn't work you must bet the turn otherwise you won't be able to build the pot. You also don't want to let 3 opponents see too many free cards there.

      I would lead out on the flop intention of getting all-in or if checked then bet out turn myself
      shoving river seems fine, since he can raise there and also call with worse hands

      Hey Jdz,

      completing with PP after 2 limpers is fine.

      On the flop, standard is to lead out the flop where I'd bet 0.30$ and keep betting on the turn. That's the most profitable line in multiway pot.

      Also, trying to check/call flop against aggessive opponents is fine, but you'd need to know they're aggressive, however if this doesn't work, I'd lead turn with potsize bet and shove river.

      As played, you have to go broke on the river.

      Regards,
